Hi

to ALL Firefox admins and programmers.....

I think Im speaking for most people when I say this......

PUT THE DAMN TABS !!!!!BELOW!!!! the address bar already!!

People have been begging you to do this for ******* years!!!

Stop being such a**holes and make it like this BY DEFAULT FOREVER! And add a simple option in the setting that always allows the user to put the tabs above or below....but I know most people want this always BELOW!!!

Fix this issue PLEASE it pisses soooo many people off having the tabs above the address bar. ...Also when I double click on the empty space beside the tabs it just shrink the open window.....change this so double clicking on the empty area OPENS A NEW TAB...

First of all, I am using KDE Neon and my version of Thunderbird is 78.11.0

I was looking to read my emails through pythons mailbox library and the mbox file that I've read is in `~/.thunderbird/<Profile-Name>/*.mbox` but inside of my thunderbird directory is `'Crash Reports'/ ho4bladv.default/ 'Pending Pings'/ ebcc78zm.default-release/ installs.ini profiles.ini`.

I thought it might be in the ebcc... folder but I can't find an mbox folder in there either. There is an IMAP folder which seems to have my work account and personal account but there aren't mbox folders in there either. Am I doing something wrong here?

Good day,

I am so upset and frustrated after losing all of my bookmarks from my favorite browser that have decided to ask this question here which I'd normally not do and am hoping someone could clarify and guide through restoring it all.

I rebooted my PC last night and upon reboot completion my firefox was updated on its own to v89 or something, the latest as of today's date and so i spent a day not liking the most important thing that I enjoyed on the previous version, which was the ability to reload the open tab by mouse right clicking on it and selecting "Reload tab" (which was the FIRST option at the top of the menu), but for some weird reason the latest update has "New tab" as the first option to select from and no longer "Reload tab" (which is now the 2nd option), which drove me crazy as every time I went to reload my multiple open pages by mouse right clicking them and clicking on the first option at the top of the menu (which used to be reload tab), it was opening 6-7 new tabs instead as the first option at the top now is "new tab", which drove me nuts. This could be a really minor thing for some, but its not for others, its fine that its there, but there should've at least been an option to re-arrange the right click menu and either hide "new tab" as Im not even sure why that was implemented as you can simply close on the "+" signg at the end of your tab to launch a new tab if you need it, from being the first on the list or something along those lines, but I wanted my "Reload tab" be the first option on the list when I mouse right click on any page to perform action with it and thus I decided to revert to prev version Firefox Setup 88.0.1 on my Win 10 pc.

The problem I faced was when I started installing that older version I got this pop up (see attached image)

Without any serious thought I clicked on create new profile as it wouldn't let me install the older version otherwise, it either had an exit or create new option and once I created new profile it all looked brand new as if i've never owed a firefox before and I've used it for ages, my fav browser. Everything is just gone, addons, extension, everything I had organized.

I tried restoring previous profile via about:support, I see 3 on there with the latest 2 seeming to be the latest once and there was one that I think was my old one, but when I clicked on "Launch profile in bew browser" to see if thats the one I had with all my stuff, it kept giving me the same error that you see on the screenshot, so no matter what I did it just wouldnt let me launch my old one.

I searched here https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/recover-lost-or-missing-bookmarks#w_determine-if-firefox-has-created-a-new-profile tried a few things to follow, recovering bookmarks did not seem to work, I just see bookmarks from June 23rd which I didnt have any anyway, so it better not override anything I had before, and now im just so discouraged and not sure how to restore everything the way I had that deciding to post for help here.

I would appreciate if someone could clarify this instead of just posting links with tons of info to follow, I can find those links myself, some of them I followed, if someone who knows exactly what happenned and could say whether or not this is still recovarable with clear steps on what to do that would be much appreciated.

I also wonder if I was to restore my windows to previous restore point, would it restore my browser to how it was or it wouldnt?

Please assist, thank you!

Since the download of 89.01, my drop down menus on some features will not stay visible. They flicker on, and off.... gone. This happens on my search engine toolbar, plus on other sites that have a drop down menu fields for saved information. It works for for the main FF menu's drop down options across the top (i.e. File, Edit, View, History< bookmarks, Tools, Help).

I can occasionally cheat it by holding the left mouse button down and dragging it to where the drop down menu flickered for a brief nanosecond, but it often takes 3-4 times to get it to stay visible and select an option.

Additionally it seems to affect a few other features, such as when I hit the hold down the CTRL button, the window zooms/resizes larger. huh? That's a real pain in the butt when using copy/paste short cuts.

I've tried refreshing FF, checked settings. I have no add ons. Standard theme. Note: Windows 10, Version 10.0.19041 Building 19041, FF version 89.01 64bit, HP Desktop computer, Model 510-p020.

FF 88 is still on my HP laptop, and I don't have an issue with that computer or FF version. You won't find me updating that until this is sorted out. This all showed up with FF 89. At this point I'm wanting to find FF 88 to reinstall, but can't find a download for that except for 3rd party sites, and I'm not going there.

Anyone else experiencing this? And is there a solution I'm missing, or a fix on the horizon? Thank you so much for your assistance.

New Mail Not Downloading After Profile Migration On Mac

Hi, all. I just migrated my Thunderbird profile from a 2012 MacBook Pro running Mojave (10.14.6) to a new iMac running Big Sur (11.4). Both systems use Thunderbird 78.11.0. I followed the steps from the support page, and all of the email and settings seem to have loaded into the iMac.

However, when I try to download new email, the status in the bottom-left corner just hangs on "Connected to <mail server>" without pulling down any mail. A quick look at the account settings shows everything to be the same as it is on the MacBook Pro, which still downloads new mail without issue.

Has anyone else experienced this? I'd be grateful for any direction. Thanks in advance for your time.

How does one transfer the old Thunderbird Profile files from one computer to another? This appears to be a common question on the Internet and here on the Support forum.

I've seen, read and followed the help article but have been unsuccessful after weeks of trying.

I have Thunderbird Ver. 76.11.0 on the target computer and the same version on the source computer.

I have followed the steps outlined very carefully. I'm using an NTSF formatted thumb drive with ample capacity to copy the profile files from the source computer. (I discovered by a very circuitous route that the NTSF formatting is necessary. The 'how to' article should be updated to include a note about this.) I was able to copy the entire Profiles folder successfully from this path: C://users/<username>/AppData/Roaming/Thunderbird/Profiles. I have confirmed that the same files and folders from the source machine are on the thumb drive.

I have tried copying the entire Profiles folder over the existing Profiles folder on the target machine, with Thunderbird closed, without success. When I restart Thunderbird on the target machine there are no addresses from my address books and no email history.

I have tried copying just the folders contained within the Profiles folder over the equivalent folders on the target machine - again with Thunderbird closed - with the same result when I restart Thunderbird on the target machine.

Either I am doing something wrong or the instructions in the how-to are wrong. If the process is literally to copy the data from the source machine to the target machine, am I copying the correct files and folders? If not, what should I be copying? If I'm copying the right files and folders, where should they be placed on the target machine. The instructions do not include a complete pathname for the target machine but they do include instructions to copy with Thunderbird closed.

Help will be greatly appreciated and gratefully received.

Firefox was working well - and unfortunately I had forgotten to switch updates off. Now display settings on some pages are really grim from a "not great eyesight and now things are tinier" point of view.

I use Protopage (custom home page with news etc) and if you open a second tab, it allows you to have a selection of Icons each with a regularly used link. It still works, but after FF upgraded itself, the image in the tile has shrunk to a fraction of the original size - and is now surrounded by a thick border of white (with rounded edges of course).

Is there a "high vis" option which simply removes wasted white space which seems to have just been added at the expense of clarity?

Is there a way to either revert to a previous version OR to undo the visual messing about they have decided we all must want? If so, please let me know, as this "let's change something to make it harder to see", approach is a bit annoying.

Alas I cannot do a "before" image, but the "after" one is shown, complete with my efforts to explain what has changed.

Any guidance on either reversing the update or switching of the "shrink image and surround with large white border" geratfully received please.

Many thanks.

Hi,

I always disable 'Top Sites', 'Recommended by Pocket', 'Highlights' and 'Snippets' under 'Firefox Home Content' in about:preferences#home on all my devices - I like to have a clean homepage with just the web search bar waiting in the middle of the screen.

Within the last few days, those specific preferences have turned themselves back on. What's really frustrating is that when I turn them back off, they persist for a short while, but then turn themselves back on again, often all of them at once, but sometimes a subset!

I've gone as far as deleting my profile and starting afresh, but the problem reoccurs.

I'm at a loss with where to go from here or how to diagnose it further and would appreciate any advice!
